The Balkans by Ada Hamza

Mass democratic movements, huge reforms, socialism and war aren’t likely to have been huge parts of your childhood. That is unless you grew up in 80s Slovenia. Photographer Ada Hamza did, and last summer she decided to travel around the Balkans in order to visually rediscover the lands she grew up surrounded by. It has been more than 20 years since all the former Yugoslavian republics gained sovereignty, and she remains fascinated by the momentous historical and cultural shift endured by the region in the past couple decades.
